Becky Lynch Stills Believes She'll Face Ronda Rousey In A Singles Match

Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey were set to meet one-on-one at Survivor Series 2018 but a punch by Nia Jax left Becky with a concussion and took her out of the bout.

Instead, Charlotte Flair took her place.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Becky looked back on the punch that derailed arguably the biggest women's match in WWE history.

"I was pretty devastated," she said. "I was also severely concussed. I think that helped the devastation because really, I knew that if the match wasn't going to happen now, it was going to happen at WrestleMania. I knew pretty quickly that it was a good thing that it had happened. Still, when you're concussed, you're very emotional, so I was real devastated that it wasn't going to happen. Even in the hospital, I was trying to think of ways that I could still have the match at Survivor Series and they were like, 'No, you're not wrestling.' 'No, but I can do this.' 'No.'"

Instead of a one-on-one bout, Lynch and Rousey met in a triple threat match that also featured Charlotte Flair in the main event of WrestleMania 35.

When asked if she still believes a one-on-one match with Rousey will happen, Becky replied, "Yeah, and I do think it will. The fact that I've had a baby and came back so great that she'll probably want to one up me and she'll try to come back in three months. Then I'll be right there to punch her right in the face, give her a Rock Bottom, out of here in 20 seconds, Ronda."

Rousey announced the birth of her daughter on September 27.

Lynch returned at WWE SummerSlam after giving birth in December 2020. She defeated Bianca Belair to win the SmackDown Women's Championship at the event, kicking off a heel run. You can find her comments on her heel run by clicking here.
